Fashion Jobs – Cozy & Stylish Cardis For The Office

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaCosy & Stylish Cardigans For The Office_Inspiration

 

The minute those leaves start falling and that air gets crisp, it’s cardigan season! A classic layering piece that never truly goes out of style, cardigans come in so many different cuts, lengths, and materials. Cardigans make the best type of layer sweater for the office as they’re easily taken off and don’t need to be pulled over the head, often causing static (a.k.a one of the biggest style faux-pas known to mankind) once those heaters go on. We plan on staying, cozy, cute and static free this year at the office with our favourite cardigans of the season!

The “Jackardigan”
Especially on a cold Monday morning, who wouldn’t want to wrap themselves pretty much head to toe in comfort? Yes, this cardigan is THAT long. It’s got a great belted back that adds some style and structure to this cozy piece, and pockets which are always key when you’re at work. We love this number from Oak + Fort in brown, but it’s also available in black and khaki.

 

Shop the Look: Oak + Fort Cardigan 1553, $128

Patchwork
Opening Ceremony definitively did Varsity right this season and this 50/50 blend wool sweater is no exception. It’s a classic cardigan style which really goes well with everything from slacks to skirts and even jeans or a dress. Again, this style also has pockets which are super handy when you’re running to meetings with pens, phones and whatever else you’re scrambling to balance. Just be careful not to get any coffee or pen marks on you!

 

Shop the Look: Opening Ceremony Off-White OC Varsity Cardigan, $395, available at ssense.com

Trendy & Cozy
Leave it to Zara to take one of this season’s hottest prints – grey herringbone – and bring it to us in ultimate comfort. We love this cardigan for so many reasons but mainly for its belted waist and thick but structured and not bulky knit. We see this cardigan going great on its own with a basic Tee, leggings, and thigh-high boots, or over a blouse with dress pants for a blazer look.

 

Shop the Look: Zara Herringbone Cardigan with Belt, $99.90

Easy Does It
Everyone needs at least one chunky knit cardigan, in whatever style you choose. We thought this BDG one was perfect to leave at the office as your go-to cardigan when you forget one at home, or on those surprisingly chillier days. It’s simple enough that it’ll go with almost anything and available in a total of 5 colours, we’re sure you’ll be getting at least more than one.

A Canadian Classic
If you’re a cardigan aficionado, you probably either have this or need this in your closet. This Hudson’s Bay Company Wrap Cardigan has a pin closure front and is a wool/nylon/cashmere blend. We love this Canadian classic worn with either joggers at the cottage in late fall or at work with a great slack and loafer.

Fashion Jobs – How to Pull Off a Slip Dress During Winter

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canadasd1

 

Like the pyjama top, the slip dress has also been a major hit in the boudoir-dressing trend. Apart from providing good comfort and a sensual vibe, this supposed undergarment has the potential to be very versatile – especially when it comes to layering. Like the jumpsuit, the slip dress does not necessarily have to be attributed to warm temperatures because of its open and form-fitting features. It can also be coordinated with many pieces that not only provide a chic appearance but also sufficient warmth to aid in the colder seasons.  The ultimate goal is to achieve a composed look by bringing out lux style from basic loungewear. Here are four “spicy” ways to rock the slip dress in the winter season that will make you forget about that nasty freezing temperature.

sd2

Coordinating with Basics
Similar to the jumpsuit, basic tops may be worn underneath the slip dress for a layered look. Wear a short or long sleeve tee for a casual look or a turtleneck for a dressier appearance.

sd3

Coordinating with Bottoms
Don’t worry about your legs being bare because it IS possible and acceptable to wear a pair of bottoms underneath a slip dress. Jeans provide a smart casual look while dress pants give off total sophistication.

sd4

Coordinating with Sweaters
You may also choose to layer over top of the slip dress rather than underneath. For more warmth, consider wearing an oversized and chunky funnel neck or crew sweater for a chic look.

sd5

Coordinating with Accessories and Shoes
For a classic vintage look, you may consider putting over a fur stole or scarf over the slip dress. For shoes, knee-high boots are recommended for adequate leg coverage.

Fashion Jobs – Cold Weather Outfits

Thursday, February 2nd, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada

With the start of February, it feels as if the winter weather is getting colder by the day. And while we can’t actually do anything to improve the freezing temperatures, we can embrace the elements in a killer winter-approved outfit.  To make getting dressed that much easier this month, we’ve put together 3 cold weather outfits to stay warm and look cool.

1.fortheoffice

2. wool dress pants 3.topshop top 4.Boots 5.Ralph Lauren Coat

For the Office

To rule the boardroom this winter, revamp your look by investing in a pair of ultra chic wide-leg, plaid pants. These can be worn with turtlenecks and blouses or with a graphic tee if you work in a more casual office. Complete the look with a pair of warm boots and a maxi coat.

6.For running errands

7.Jeans 8.Bomber Jacket 9. Steve Madden Booties 10. ysl bag 11.Aritzia hat

For Running Errands

Ditch your go to leggings and UGG boots for a model off duty look. We love this street style look of pairing a bomber jacket with a pair of raw hem jeans and a designer bag.

12. Forgirlsnight 13.CapeCoat 14. freepeople jeans

For Girl’s Night

A cape coat is a winter essential because it’s versatile and is the perfect outerwear for a night on the town. When dealing with heavy cape material, it’s important to avoid wearing bulky sweaters and pants. Opt for fitted tops and bottoms and complete the look with a strong heel.

Fashion Jobs – Winter Approved Office Looks

Monday, January 30th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaInspirational Image

We understand the struggle of balancing your fashion-forward style in an office environment in the dead of a Canadian winter. It’s not always easy to look your best when you have to battle nature’s elements to and from work. You may even have asked yourself a few times this season: How does one make chunky, shapeless winter clothing look good? It’s not impossible!

We’ve put together three outfits to wear to work this winter that are the right combination of chic and warm while still remaining functional. Getting ready for work this season has just gotten a whole lot easier!

1.sweater 3.Leather pants2.Boots

Look One

In the past, winter boots that had it all (anti-slip treads on the soles, waterproof material and warm insulation) rarely translated to sleek or stylish. Footwear companies have really stepped up their game and you can now find a huge selection of practical yet cool winter gear. Pair black wedge boots with leather leggings and a fuzzy sweater for a chic pulled together winter ensemble that will surely be a hit in the boardroom.

Product Details:

CHIKIMIKI Ines Black Cashmere Sweater, $745, available at Lyst

Sorel Jan of Arctic Wedge Mid Boot in Black Quarry, $280, available at Sorel

Imitation Leather Trousers, $29.99, available at H&M

8.leopard jacket4.skirt 5. cashmere sweater 6.belt7.Fleece tights

Look Two

Skirts can actually be a year-round staple if you get a little creative. Look for heavy fabrics and longer lengths when deciding to wear one in the colder months. First, tuck a cashmere sweater into the waistline of your skirt and complete the look by cinching your waist with a thin belt. Complete the look with a pair of fleece black tights, as they’ll protect your legs from the cold weather.

Product Details:

• Asymmetrical Zip Pencil Skirt in Wool, $95, available at J Crew

• Les 100 Ciels Cashmere Sweater in Cream, $197.69, available at ASOS

• Skinny Faux Leather Belt in Black, $6.90, available at Forever 21

• Fleece Tights in Black, $14.99, available at H&M

• Evans Leopard Print Faux Fur Coat, $190.94, available at Nordstrom

9. turtleneck 10.dresspants 11.boots

Look Three

Ditch the predictable black winter jacket this season and swap it for something that makes a serious statement. This year, bold, attention-getting coats are all the rage, as seen on fashionistas from around the world. Faux fur, patterned and bold coloured jackets are an easy way to make a statement at work while still following the dress code. Go for a more casual look underneath, like a chic turtleneck, a pair of dress pants and ankle boots, and then let your outerwear do all the talking.

ALDO BOOTS

Roots Hat

Your wardrobe needn’t suffer when the weather outside is frightful, even if you overdid it with your Christmas shopping this year. To brave the elements you need a coat or jacket that is flattering and equipped to handle the occasional snowstorm, like this down parka from Joe Fresh ($79). Cinch this oversized sweater from H&M ($24.95) with a belt and add a layer underneath for extra insulation. A pair of dark brown, shearling-trimmed boots from Aldo ($150) can handle slippery sidewalks. Don’t forget to keep those ears warm with this Signet Fairisle Trapper from Roots ($46).
